Councilwoman Donna Frye cast the dissenting vote, arguing that other important issues need to be discussed, such as budget cuts.
In March, the Chargers activated the trigger clause in their lease which set the wheels in motion for discussing a new stadium for the team. A 90 day window opened between the Chargers and the City to get a deal done before the Chargers could shop themselves if no deal was consummated. Now an extra 90 days will be added to that window that was slated to end June 2nd.
No one has leaked intel about what has transpired thus far regarding talks between the team and the City. The extension is viewed as a positive sign that both sides want to get a deal done, and the recent release of the economic impact of the Super Bowl on the city is fresh in everyones minds.
A team spokesman has said the Chargers would like to replace the existing lease, which runs to 2020, with a temporary one before the first preseason game in August.
